Female GPs shouldn't be limited by glass ceilings – gender barriers must be identified and addressed, says RCGP

Publication date: 10 January 2020

Responding to the latest Institute for Public Policy Research analysis that found pay inequalities among general practitioners Professor Martin Marshall, Chair of the Royal College of GPs, said:

"Women play an essential role in general practice and outnumber men in the GP workforce in England. In this respect, general practice is leading the way in gender equality – it's a real success story of the NHS. It is vital that women are not limited by glass ceilings and barriers - gender equality must be reflected across the entire profession, including within management and leadership positions, such as practice partnerships, and if such barriers are identified then they must be addressed."
